Since the rains have just stopped, we will plan a hike at Op Khan, a beautiful river gorge national park south of Chiang Mai. We have a circular hike of less than 10 km. that we have done there a number of times with possibilities of climbing along the rocky edge or on higher, shady trails. This is a moderate hike with a few short, steep areas and a lovely place to enjoy lunch on the river’s edge. We will meet at the CM Art museum parking lot at 7:50 and car pool to the park, which is about an 20-25 km. drive away. We should be back by 2pm
If you want to join just turn up at the meeting place on the day. We cannot accommodate groups.
This time we will meet at 7:50 am in the car park of the Chiang Mai Art Museum
